Their latest album ‘Cumberland Island’ blends an array of musical styles into a distinct voice. “For us, it’s always about the song: what are we saying musically and what are we saying lyrically? As a band, we really try to get on the same page with the concept and then the rest seems to sort itself out,” explains David. On stage, Rye lives up to their album and not by accident. “We work hard on our live show and we love doing it. I can’t imagine ever getting tired of sharing music.” Rye is taking the tried and true route of writing good songs and playing live all of the time. And it’s working.

Reed Ferguson is a timid teen Americana/Pop artist from Atlanta who, as a kid, struggled with her intense shyness. But that all changed the day she picked up a guitar at 12 years old. Since then? Well, let's just say that when it comes to speaking her mind, there's no beating around the bush with Reed. No…she takes to her guitar and clever lyrics to lay you out on the mat, sweetly and unassumingly. From others, these tunes might seem a bit jaded, but coming from shy
16 year old Reed it feels like a softly swung sucker punch that leaves you flat out IN LOVE, not only with her music but with the quiet strength that IS Reed.
Rob Agocs is a young singer-songwriter/recording artist looking to find his roots. He picked up a harmonica at age 3 and hasn't put it down since. While he studies to finish his mechanical engineering degree from Georgia Tech, he also is in the process of recording his first studio album, to be released in late 2013/early 2014.
Rob draws influence from several sources, including The Byrds, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Dawes, Butch Walker, and the Foo Fighters. He has played on numerous studio albums for other Atlanta musicians and would like to find a way to pursue a career outside of engineering - preferably music. If you've got any advice, he'd love to hear it.
